Get ready to rumble
By Robin Scott
The first Sunday in February and “Get ready to rumble” can only mean one thing: the Super Bowl is at hand. This year’s 44th Super Bowl will be played on Sunday, February 7th in the Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida. Dalhart area residents are getting ready too for a game between the Indianapolis Colts and the New Orleans Saints, and whether a Colts fan or a Saints fan, Super Sunday should be fun for everyone.
Kick off is scheduled for just after 5:00 p.m. (Dalhart time) on Sunday. The 44th Super Bowl promises to include the highly anticipated brand new commercials as well as superior talent during the half-time show. The band, “The Who,” is expected to perform, and they will no doubt play a Miami favorite, “Don’t get fooled again,” the theme song for the hugely popular “CSI Miami.” It’s reported that David Caruso, better known as “Horatio Cane,” Miami’s top Crime Scene Investigator, will make an appearance during the Super Bowl.
Although only two NFL teams play during the Super Bowl, the location of the game is so important that the city itself becomes a third team. Miami has geared up for the game for months and the Miami theme will be prevalent throughout the several hour-long event. From the pre-game show to the game itself and the half-time extravaganza, fans will have all afternoon and evening to get into the Super Bowl spirit.
Locally, Cowboy fans are deciding which team to root for and whether or not to invest in white and blue or black and gold. Parties are scheduled all over town for groups of people to get together and cheer on their chosen “favorite” team. The disappointment of the Cowboys not making it to the final game will be long gone by kick off time and the hope that the Cowboys might pull it off for Super Bowl 45 will begin early Monday morning.
This year’s Super Bowl is the 10th held in Miami, at what once was the Dolphin’s Stadium. The Super Bowl is an American holiday of sorts, and the amount of food purchased and consumed for Super Bowl Sunday is only topped by Thanksgiving Day, proving that celebrating the final game between football teams is an important event in
